Join itma and Near FM for a series of a performances and interviews that focus on bringing the archival collections at itma to life. Here we present the series again as a listen again/podcast option.


The final broadcast of the Within a Mile of Dublin 2 series focuses on the PW Joyce Collection, bringing together conversation, song, and music to show how the work of a 19th-century collector continues to shape the practices of musicians in the 21st century. Also in this programme we pay tribute to Irish music legend, Mícheál Ó Súilleabháin who passed away on November 7th 2018.
